Laid off for many a month with kids, kids, kids, kids, kids, kids, kids, kids, kids - well not 9, just 2 little buggers. And I noticed while I had the wheel off with it loaded in the back of the pick-up, that the rear hub bearing bush was shagged. Could get ugly if it's not attended to, but it's unobtainable. Hmm. After a bit of interwebbing the hands-on Teo Lamers, who used to race BOTT, came to the rescue. He had a batch made up from scratch in stock.
If the Dutch want more land, they just build a polder and reclaim a bit more sea. If a factory is no longer making a part, they just make it them selves. Problem solved.
So apart from a trip to Toulouse in a gale, and a couple of evening jaunts just to keep my hand in, the Guzzi hasn't had much action this year. But over the years it has been used and abused. It looks shabby, but it keeps on rollin' it's my Tonka toy. BP
